A union auto worker rants about several factors in the decline of the US auto industry.
Now I'm not saying that he's 100% right, but read it and see what you think.
I've posted on this situation myslef, several months ago;
And not trying to go off on a rant myself, but it has always bothered me to see union workers driving foreign made vehicles. I'm a union Engineer, not working in the auto industry or related field. It's always been my opinion, that union workers bear a responsability to support other union workers. Just like crossing a picket line, buying a foreign made, non union produced vehicle is not suportive.
Now in this case, it's obviously not just the buying of foreign cars, but poor management and the union's unrealistic outlook. Combine this with CEOs setting up sweat retrirement packages. It's all cumulative.
I'm not calling for protective tarrifs at this late stage in the game, nor am I saying to burn foreign cars at football games like they did in the 70's. Just read the articles and think the next time you go shoppping.
